Hi Andy,

For the Java code, we used Apache Ant. Your IDE should understand the build.xml file.

However if you’re planning on using more modern versions of the frameworks we used (I’d recommend that), I’d suggest using Maven and getting your IDE to pull in the components via the pom.xml.

I really appreciate your response to my question; I actually didnt think I would hear from anyone, but, now I am reassured, Thank you.
I am using Eclipse and Netbeans, and will try to follow your reccomendations of using Maven, whcih is also new to me;
Also, I am trying to position myself for "Modernization" projects, on the IBM Mainframe platform, z/OS, OS/MVS, COBOL;
I do think there is a way for RESTful WebServices to be used in these efforts, but, I am still going up the learning curve and it may take me some time to understnad how to achieve this.Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Once again, Thank you very much,

Hi Andy,

This is a low volume mailing list admittedly, but quite friendly.

I think exposing Web services from mainframes makes a bunch of sense (if you choose appropriate representation formats). However unless you’re sitting atop java (you might be I guess) then I can’t offer any opinions about how to go about it.

Anyone else on here got any mainframe-Web services experience I wonder?

Yes, it would be JAVA connecting back to Mainframe , not sure how yet; IBM System i, has a way to connect JAVA programs(class file) to RPG as an external program
if i could get an example of a REST Web Service, connecting to backend processing that might clear the cloudy sky
the reason i am asking is because there seems to be "modernization" projects being done this way,,
